Information for Travelers
Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is divided in two by the Danube River.
The city is considered by many to be the "Paris of the East".
Although humans have lived in Budapest since the Stone Age, this historic city only formally came into being in 1872 with the merger of three formerly independent cities: Old Buda (Obuda), Buda and Pest.
After the merger, it became the administrative, commercial and industrial center of Hungary.
Straddling the Danube River, Budapest is famous for its hot springs, some of which have been used for therapeutic purposes since prehistoric times.

The city is also a shopper's paradise, from the traditional products and food available in the grand old Central Market Hall to Vaci Street, known for its mix of luxury boutiques and big brands.
This beautiful city is not only one of the most culturally important metropolises in Eastern Europe, it is also home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
